Internet & Networking After long negotiations and back and forths between the EU, Microsoft, and other browser makers, Microsoft's browser ballot proposal has been amended and offered up for debate yet again by the EU; this time around, it will actually be tested out by consumers. A number of changes have been made since the first proposal, so let's take a look.

Ie in the center.

Anyone else notice how IE is now in the center? I think that's actually a better spot then the first in the horizontal list. I don't think there is a good arrangement that would be perfectly fair. Maybe the order is randomly generated? Or is that just going to an absurd length?

I actually don't really care that much about the browser ballot, but what I do care about is how to fairly present a number of options for a user to make an unbiased choice.

Aside: Wow, I just saw an add for pystar on Osnews! That's pretty cool.
